Female rapper Wangechi and The Fenamenal Woman Fena Gitu are set to release one of the most anticipated East African Female collaborations of the year. The single titled ‘They Don’t Know’ will be released this Friday 17th July at 12 AM via Wangechi’s sound cloud account.
Fans from both camps went on a frenzy a few weeks ago after Fena’s instagram teaser post (photo) showing Wangechi and her in what seemed like the background of a studio with the caption ‘Surround yourself with dopeness and you will become dope’ followed by the hashtag ‘We cooking’, this also saw entertainment sites speculating on the impact from such a collaboration terming it “a match made in heaven”.
The single ‘They Don’t Know’ is an urban, fresh, upbeat dance anthem song that fuses Fena Gitu’s urban soul style with Wangechi’s soulful new school feel coupled with her well-known lyrical delivery. The single is part of collaborative project that was initiated last year by Goethe-Institute Nairobi dubbed ‘Ten Cities’ that saw selected artists, DJ’s and producers from across the world participate in the project.
Fena Gitu is best known for her singles Fenamenal Woman, Brikicho, Jabulani and African King off her debut album Fenamenon. With an impressive performance C.V, Fena’s soulful yet electrifying performances qualify her as one of Kenya’s finest and most unique acts in recent times.
Wangechi broke her silence early this year by dropping her independent project ‘Wangechi Sessions’ which are series of live studio video recordings of Wangechi and her band ‘The Watooz band’ performing some of her fan-favorite songs from her expanding music collection. Thereafter Wangechi released her first comeback single titled ‘Cardiac Arrest’ early last month, which has been ranked as part for the dope singles to drop in 2015.
